New tastes for a Saturday

A local suggested we find this place on the Saturday of our mini break and as we'd never tried Portuguese food before we wanted to give it a go. The place was almost full with a few big parties but they quickly managed to find us a table. After a lot of menu studying I ordered crab Creole and a... read more

My boyfriend is Portuguese and therefore knows what good Portuguese food is and he agrees that this is definitely up there with the best. I was part... More

A traditional Portuguese meal, the food was of an exceptionally high standard, freshly prepared the traditional way and really tasty, portions were large and served by friendly, efficient and well trained staff. Our wine was served cold and the food hot, just as it should be. Price-wise, really good value for money. The entire experience was well worth the visit.... More

For our mains we had a salt cod dish, beef and chicken kebab and a seafood kebab. All were cooked to perfection. We rarely get... More

The service was attentive and... More

I stopped here with a friend in the week and we really enjoyed our meal. I had the sea food pasta which was a big portion, you really get good value for money at this restaurant. I would say it's definitely worth a visit!
